|ERIC ED389663: Image and Identity: Clothing and Adolescence in the 1990s. - ERIC|
This document looks for meanings in the U.S. adolescent's relationship with clothing and fashion. The material is designed to be used with senior high school students but may be adapted for older or younger students. The topic is particularly relevant to English, sociology, home economics, history, and current events classes. In four activities students move from general observations about clothing to consideration of their own personal wardrobes, then to focus on school/community styles, and fi...

This master's thesis provides a description of the proposed art form called single-frame cinema, which is a category of computer imagery that takes the temporal polarities of photography and cinema and unites them into a single visual vignette of time. Following introductory comments, individual chapters discuss (1) the essential physical properties of these vignettes, which are referred to as motion-stills; (2) the conceptual properties of the motion-still; and (3) presentation of the art form...

|ERIC ED284310: Historical Development of Television Aesthetics/Television Theory. - ERIC|
Even though television scholar Herbert Zettl singlehandedly created the term "television aesthetics" by proclaiming that TV is an art, television studies are still excluded from the respectable divisions and disciplines of knowledge. Television is considered the epitome of mass culture/kitsch, and the very idea of a TV "masterpiece," for example, is improbable. "Television theory" would be a preferable label for a field of study that has been developing in isolated strands since the 1930s, and w...

In opposition to popular disparaging of television as an artistic medium, television can be considered as having its own aesthetics and can be placed in the category of fine arts (as opposed to folk arts). Television art can and should be distinguished from video art and film art in the ways in which it imitates reality; program content and filming technique are two ways in which television art separates itself...

In order to understand the place of Herbert Read both in 20th century aesthetics and art education, one needs to carefully consider the entire field of English art and aesthetics from 1900 to the beginning of the Second World War. This time frame was dominated by the thoughts of Roger Fry and Clive Bell, and works both literary and visual, of the Bloomsbury Group. This period in English art and design was characterized by the response of Roger Fry to cubism and the work of the avant garde in Eur...

The revolution brought about by computerized technology, in general, and television imagery, in particular, challenges the perceptual habits and alters the television viewer's means of expressing appreciation of the aesthetic merits of such television images. This study speculates on several perceptual and aesthetic drawbacks of future massive applications of three dimensional (3-D) video images.

Some of these alternatives can be derived from three well-established areas of film/television study: the representational/reproductive cinema; non-European film and video; and experimental film and video...

The essay explores the common threads that wove through John Dewey's "Art as Experience" and "Logic: The Theory of Inquiry" (published 1934 and 1938 respectively). Both works were parts of a system of ideas, not isolated books as some critics suggest. In order to show that there is a common basis for Dewey's two books, literature that has surfaced since 1938 is reviewed. This literature shows how Dewey's theory of aesthetics (in "Art") was received...

Many are aware that to secure a safe Earth for future generations means that people must know more about the Earth, its inhabitants, and the role that each plays in sustaining life on Earth. This lack of knowledge today has led to decisions such as the destruction of the rainforest, the growing and inefficient use of fossil fuels, and until recently the continued use of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs). In order to rectify this problem, many educators and scientists have suggested the development and ...
